    Phoronix: ALSA 1.0.23 Is Here With Better Linux Audio

    As the first update in 2010, ALSA 1.0.23 has been released this morning to replace ALSA 1.0.22 that was released last December. Like usual, this update to the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture brings mostly individual driver fixes but there is also support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 and a few ALSA core fixes...

    Alsa support for oxygen driver is excellent!

      Well, I've still problems with my Asus Xonar D2X, even on the latest Kubuntu 10.04. Like no proper 7.1 sound...

        Use pulseaudio in case you don't.

          ALSA is moving nowhere. Sucks as hard as it always did and it's definitely not "Here With Better Linux Audio". Rather "Here With The Usual Brain Damage".

            Why? Please explain why instead of just saying alsa isn't moving anywhere.

              Does anybody actually care about creative xfi? Seems to me that this is not only a "screw you" hardware, it is also ANCIENT and therefore IRRELEVANT.

                Don't feed the OSS troll. ALSA is fine.

                  I really don't understand why are people bitching about alsa,...I have problem with audio only when App. doesn't support pulse-audio and that's it,...every thing about alsa works across 5 PC-s that I have and 2 Macs(my friend has it),...modyfing app that doesn't work to use alsa solves all problems,...soooo...I must switch to OSS4 ??!!! ^^

                      Use Jack sound server for low latency. I think you're complaining more about PulseAudio, which has got nothing to do with Alsa as a driver.

                        No I don't. I'm complaining about ALSA. And could you explain to me how Jack will help with latency since it needs ALSA to play sounds?

                            and yet, despite having a bug report open for close to 3 years, with numerous contributions, i still have no proper support for my laptop.

                            thing has been tagged 'assigned' since late 2007 ......

                            go figure.

                              You don't get it. JACK does not offer sound card drivers. It uses ALSA. And ALSA is high latency. ALSA is the bottleneck JACK can't get around. Unless JACK magically makes ALSA perform better.

                              Can't be that hard to understand.
